The National Communication Officer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Lawyer Sammy Gyamfi has reacted to recent viral pictures and videos of an E-levy cake alleged to be specially made for the 65th birthday celebration of the Majority Leader, Hon Osei Kyei Mensah-Bonsu.
He, however, expressed shock that Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, the Head of Ghana’s Economic Management Team who has not said anything about the controversial E-levy since the Minister of Finance made mention of it while reading the 2022 Budget Statement and Economic Policy, was the guest of honour for the celebration.
“Checkout E-Levy cake at the plush birthday party of the Majority Leader, Hon. Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu. Guess what? Our Jocular Vice President and Head of the Economic Management Team at large, who has been mute on the obnoxious E-Levy policy, was the special guest of honour.”
According to him, the unabated display of opulence and ostentation the Akufo-Addo-led New Patriotic Party government at this hard times is an insult to suffering Ghanaians.
“The continuous display of opulence and ostentation by the Akufo-Addo/Bawumia government at this time of excruciating hardships is nauseating and insulting to the sensibilities of suffering Ghanaians,” he stated.
